A damaged conveyor belt can cause long and expensive downtimes. PHOENOCARE® SL helps to minimize the damage that results from the belt being slit longitudinally. The system is preferred in critical areas like loading points with high impact energies. PHOENOCARE® SL consists of electroinductive conductor loops which are vulcanized into the carrying or running side and spaced according to requirements.
Monitoring sensors are fitted in front of a critical area and behind it. The integrated conductor loops serve as electromagnetic transmitters, which are scanned by the monitoring sensors. The conveyor belt is immediately halted when it is slit by a foreign body, and the electrical circuit is interrupted as a result in order to prevent greater damage. The belt damage can thus be reduced to a few meters. In addition, the conveyor belt can be equipped with a transponder as the data carrier.
